BISMARCK, N.D. - Carson Wentz's high school alma mater is undefeated and the top ranked team in this week's Class-AAA football poll. Century goes for it's fourth-straight victory on Friday night.
Patriots Head Coach Ron Wingenbach says staying healthy and depth have been the key reasons to his team's early season success.
"Well, number one is, knock on wood, we've been able to stay away from injury and consequently we're building some depth, especially on the offensive and defensive line. The depth at our line backing crew hopefully will be a little more solidified here in the next couple of weeks and the overall play of our secondary has been pretty good up until this point. So, a lot of the positives, but we want to continue to work on some of the little things that are biting us a little bit in some of the games," said Wingenbach.
The Patriots will play the Williston Coyotes on Friday night and Wingenbach knows the Patriots can not overlook the 'Yotes.
"We play Williston Coyotes; a big physical team. I think, you know, over the last several years they continuously improved and this might be one of their better squads that they've had in the last several years, so we'll certainly have our work cut out for us. Like I said, up front they will pose as much physicality as we'll see probably in the West Region and we've got to be able to combat that their quarterback's a good athlete, nice ball and they have some pretty handy receivers," said Wingenbach.
This game will be in Williston beginning at 7:00 p.m. CT.
